Today, June 18, 2012, marks the 111th birthday of Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov, the last of four daughters born to the Tsar Nikolas and his wife Alexandra.

After the tragic execution of the Russian Royal family in1918, officials were never able to recover the remains of Anastasia. Tales of her supposed escape from Russia have gripped thousands for decades, fueling speculation that a daughter of Russia’s last sovereign ruler survived the revolution that destroyed her immediate family.

In honor of the lost Duchess, I have a copy of The Last Romanov by Dora Levy Mossanen to give away!
